    HPV gets all the attention when addressing cervical cancer. The truth is the body can eliminate HPV on its own for about 90% of women that have it. According to the American Cancer Society, the risk factors for cervical cancer are long and many, including--but not limited to--family history, smoking, having many sex partners, long-term use of birth control pills, chlamydia infection, a long-term weakened immune system, 3 or more full-term pregnancies especially if first full-term was before age 20, and on and on and on. Don't believe ALL the HPV hype!
